Cool Crystal Series 280X RGB - ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac Build

I have to say I'm pretty sold on this Crystal series case, after a few tweaks to accommodate everything. Note, I've updated the photos as of 04/23 to reflect the addition of the Pro Cable Kit in white and a swap of the Vengeance RGB Pro memory kit to white as well.

- Intel Core i7-8700K Unlocked
- ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming ITX/ac Motherboard
- Corsair Vengeance RGB Pro 32GB DDR4-3000Mhz
- T-Force Delta RGB 1TB SSD x2 in RAID 0 (Mounted on lower case)
- Samsung 870 EVO 2TB M.2 NVME x2 in RAID 0 (On motherboard)
- EVGA NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti (Black Edition)
- Corsair HX750i Power Supply
- Corsair H100i RGB Platinum AIO (29C idle), Front mounted in a push/pull configuration with two Corsair ML120 RGB and two LL120 RGB fans
- Corsair LL140 RGB x2 140mm Fans up top to exhaust air (photos show LL120's before upgrade to the LL140's)
- Corsair LL120 RGB x1 120mm Fan on the bottom for added GPU cooling and air flow
- Noctua Redux 80 x2 80mm Fans in the rear to silently exhaust (required additional screw pilot holes to mount)
- Corsair RGB LED x5 around the main compartment tempered glass and upper areas
- Corsair Lighting Node and Commander Pro with Temp Monitors installed for air intake, upper case, lower case, and side compartment
- Phanteks RGB Digital Controller for the T-Force Delta SSDs addressable RGB lighting
- NZXT Internal USB Hub

Given this was my first Gaming PC build in about a decade, I'm pleased so far with the results. I'm not sure how much OC I'll be able to achieve, but the ASRock motherboard has been solid so far. As is, the system blazes through any game thrown at it in 3840x1600 resolution, with the CPU maxing no higher than 55C and the GPU at 75C. (CPU 32C idle and GPU 45C idle)

Enjoy the photos and game on!
